“Problems are not the problem, coping is the problem.” ~ Virginia Satir
Time to change the channel, there is no reason to stay stuck on it. http://bit.ly/Xkquu0. I’ve had more than my fill of news about the Carnival cruise ship that let down its vacationers. The travelers talk as if it was if they were intentionally “wronged.” Fact of the matter – it was an unfortunate incident that no one could have predicted and everyone was in a difficult situation. And, there are no guarantees that life will always be smooth sailing.
I did hear a few of the “victims” say that they had joined in with others to create prayer groups while awaiting rescue. There you go! Bundling positive energy together and using good coping skills. Would it be any surprise if those folks came away from the incident with much healthier perspectives? When communities of people bring positive energy together and create networking groups, good things happen. Negative energy does nothing to attract positive energy, we all know that.
Let’s face it. The steam that moves us human beings forward in positive directions ultimately comes from our own reserves; as we draw from our wellspring of strengths, inner exertion and convictions and pluck!
Time to go and plan our monthly meeting for We Write Steamboat – a meet-up group for independent publishers! It is happening this afternoon. And, soon it will be lunchtime, when I’ll fill up my tank and nourish my soul by going on my daily walk. I know I’ll find something fulfilling to write about for tomorrow.
